Steadfast Applications: Who We Are

Steadfast Applications, LLC                                   

Who we are:

Steadfast Applications, LLC is a Veteran owned and operated small business founded in 2016 by Brandon Miedema and Tim Nelson. Steadfast Applications is a division of Long Range Archery and Firearms in Holland, MI.

Brandon Miedema has been a student of the gun for the last 10 years. In 2009 he joined the U.S. Army Infantry and completed over 6 years with three deployments with the 82nd ABN, before transferring over to the Michigan National Guard, where he currently serves as an Infantry Squad Leader. During his time in the US Army, he has had the opportunity to attend several premier schools and is currently the firearms instructor for his Company in the National Guard. He is an avid hunter, and currently operates the Firearms division at Long Range Archery in Holland, MI. Brandon also participates in several shooting sports activities such as USPSA and 3-gun as a way to maintain his proficiency.


Tim Nelson has been involved with firearms for more than 10 years, starting as a hobby that eventually turned into a way of life. Tim developed his passion for instructing during his time as a Non-Commissioned Officer in the US Army Infantry where he saw a void in practical firearms training. He has also worked in the private sector, conducting cash in transit as an armed courier, as well as working low level personal security details. He is an adamant concealed carry advocate, and an active participant in several shooting sports, such as IDPA, USPSA and 3-Gun.

Brandon and Tim are both NRA certified instructors for Basic pistol and Personal Protection In the Home
